moderated Re: Hearing the word suggestions as I type e-mails
The most common keystroke to access the Settings Center is, Insert + 6, on the number row, but another way to get to the Settings Center is by pressing, Insert + F2, to open the Jaws Manager, and navigate to Settings Center and press enter.
Stay safe & take care. Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say: "Close Enough!"

Hi. I am trying to get to the settings center in Jaws, but I am pressing the incorrect keystroke. I was sure I remembered the keystroke, but I guess I have forgotten it. Thanks.
This is caused by Outlook’s attempt to guess what you are about to type. The text is part of a UIA notification event. Although I don’t have specific solutions for Outlook, but at least from JAWS side, try turning off “accessible event notification” (found in settings Center).
I think I’m running into the same problem. For me, it’s in the message body. If I’m not typing as fast as I can, I hear the suggestion, and hit TAB to accept it if it’s what I want. Most of the time, I’ve already started typing, and I miss the suggestion, so I’d also like it gone as well.

Where, in Outlook, are you being bugged by the suggestions? When writing in the body of the email or in one of the to or copy fields?
With best regards,
Hi. I am using office 365 and use Outlook 365 as my e-mail client. I am running the latest version of Jaws under the latest version of Windows 10 pro edition. While I am typing this e-mail, the word suggestion keeps coming up which is distracting and annoying. How do I turn this feature off? Thanks.
